New Village Academy?

What on earth is all the talk about New Village Academy and Will Smith? I feel like I'm behind on the news. Is Monseiur Smith opening a Scientology school, or is this just press hooplah?

According to Will himself, it is not a scientology school, and he is not a scientologist.

According to anyone who's ever read about, or been at, scientology schools, will say that it's a scientology school.

In the end all that can be said is; At least Will is smart enough to not directly associate himself with the CoS in statements.
The most important thing to learn about Life, the Universe, and Everything, is firstly; the answer is 42, and secondly; how utterly ridiculous it truly is

Here's the link to the school's site. Decide for yourself.

http://newvillageacademy.org/index.cfm

(Mind you, they've cleansed the website, removing reference to all the teachers (who happen to be scientologists), and changing "Qual" to examinations and "Ethics" to "Leadership" and removing the Heron Basics program.

Kendra,

Here are links to 2 recent articles on Will Smith and his school.

http://www.christianpost.com/article/20 ... y-ties.htm

This one is about Scientology and his career.

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/ne ... 1808.story

Based on my experience with Tom Cruise and other celebs, they will deny they are involved in Scientology for years, when they really are involved and don't want it out there to negatively affect their careers.

From what I am reading and seeing of Will Smith and his wife, I suspect that there is more there than they are saying.
If it's not fun and doesn't make you happy, DON'T DO IT !!!

Looks like a scientology school to me.

Scientology by any other name sounds like this:

The New Village Academy continually researches best educational practices and consults with the top educational thinkers of the day so that our program is the best, the most current, the most educationally sound and the most foundationally relevant for our preschool and elementary school children in this day and age. It is our philosophy that students need to understand why they are learning and what they are learning. What is the relevance of algebra, phonics or recycling to everyday life? How will these concepts be used and why are they important? What is the purpose and application of this knowledge? We make sure that children are given the opportunity to make connections, opening minds to using their full intelligences to make ever widening, “spiraling” connections to the complex world.
